New family reunion - now with cousins

I finally got a picture of all my modulars.

- 92-space MU format modular: One 48-space cabinet plus two 22-space portable cabinets on top.
- 9U (252 hp) Eurorack format modular.
- Effects rack (with patchbay and attenuators for modular-like patching and feedback loops).
- FutureRetro XS Semi-modular w/ FutureRetro Mobius sequencer.
- Nord Modular G2 (expanded) in front of the MU system.
- Nord Micromodular on top of the G2.
- Audiomulch on the Macbook beside the Nord G2.
- VAZ Modular on a Dell XPS Ultrabook on top of the Eurorack.

Family reunion

I didn't know what to do with the old rack... then it came to me. It was only logical to use it for as an FX rack and to place the eurorack system on top. So here's the full modular rig.... well, almost full. I still have to add the FutureRetro Mobius. I'm going to need some longer patch cables.

Moving the old system into a new cabinet

I got tired of that ugly 22U rack that housed almost half of my MU system and didn't want to risk my gear again by having two 22-space portable cabinets in an unstable vertical stack that can easily fall and kill my modular and/or my cat. So I had someone make me a 44-space slanted studio cabinet similar to those from Synthesizers.com. Except the guy made it 24 spaces wide instead of 22 spaces, so I ended up with a 48-space studio cab and a little extra space for new modules.

Here is a picture of the cab:



Here it is after installing the power components:



After the modules were installed I had 11 spaces left. A new SSL V-Gates module was already included:



Here is the full system with the two portable cabinets on top. I decided to keep the ugly 22U rack beside the modular for effects and other stuff. The eurorack system will be on top of the rack.


Those holes ain't gonna fill themselves, so stay tuned.

Last piece of the puzzle

My Xmas gift to myself: a Xaoc Devices Moskwa sequencer, which was the last eurorack module on my list. After two years, my euro system is now complete.



As an extra bonus, I finally purchased the VAZ Modular virtual synth. The demo version of this software introduced me to modular synthesis around 12 years ago, and I've wanted the full version ever since.

Just a vanity picture of the euro system with the newest modules: 4ms Rotating Clock Divider, SnazzyFX Ardcore, and WMD Geiger Counter.

Gimme some more

Already started adding a third row of Euro, which will be mostly dedicated to sequencing the other two rows. The first module I included is the most excellent Dave Jones O'Tool - a mini dual-channel oscilloscope, with VU-meters, spectral view, tuner, and some other functions. In the future, I'll try to add one to the 5U system. Also bought some Doepfer modules for pitch quantizing, a clock divider, and something I've always wanted: a WMD Geiger Counter.
